In today’s economy, many copywriters find it necessary to freelance their work. Companies that have downsized often find it less expensive to outsource work than to keep a full-time copywriter on staff.
Freelancing on sites where writers bid against other writers is difficult and often doesn’t pay well.
Moreover, articles sold this way are not published under the writer’s name, since this is considered ‘ghostwriting.’
Fortunate copywriters may become recognized by a small base of loyal buyers, but without meaningful name recognition, the potential for income is limited.
